A mighty Fortress is our God

1
A mighty Fortress is our God,
A Bulwark never failing;
Our Helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great,
And, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
2
Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God's own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth His Name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
3
And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For lo! his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
4
That word above all earthly powers,
No thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through Him who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also;
The body they may kill:
God's truth abideth still,
His Kingdom is forever.

On our morning prayer call today, the scripture target was Isaiah 41:10. The theme was A sure Faith. The whole 41st chapter is a sure reminder why we should never be afraid. GOD is with us and He says He will help us. When the prayer was over, this song was in my head. My favorite verse is verse 2. Our own strength is never enough, but we have the ‘right man’ on our side. HALLELUJAH, I love it!!!

I woke up this morning at 4am with this song rolling through me before my eyes even opened. One of the devil’s tactics is to divide and conquer. Our fortress is our God!

This hymn gives me the confidence that our victory as God's children over the devil is assured even though he will not stop trying to fight us. The lyrics of this hymn are so relivant in this present time that we find ourselves. Praise God! Our victory is assured.

Such an incredible devotion to God. A wise man once said, "Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom."

This is nearly the end of the age the words of this hymn remind us that God alone is our fortress in whom we must trust to keep us safe and take us safe to our home in heaven.

It is the Lord Jesus Christ who saves us by His blood. Put your trust in Him people before it is too late and the night comes and none can be saved. tell your family and friends to trust Today .!!

I have been 📚 Psalm 46 and most commentaries made reference to Luther. It took me back to the 911 situation in the US. I heard the Presbyterian ⛪ refer to Luther. Here we are in 2020 devastated by Covid19. The words came to mind for courage to the 🌎.

If you sing it out loud majestically with pomp and circumstance it gives you more than a minute of handwashing time. You can sing half of it for the first time you wash your hands thoroughly and then the second half of the first verse for the next handwashing. It is truly applicable to our current coronavirus plague.
